Widespread allegations of sexual harassment and assault have surfaced in the business and political worlds over the past several months, so the Business Journal asks: Is your company planning to update its workplace sexual harassment policies or hold additional training?
Rick Merrill, Founder and Chief Executive, Gavelytics
We have a rigorous policy, and I’m a lawyer, so I’m very familiar with the content. I don’t see a reason to revise our policy, but I think it’s important to confirm that employees understand it—and equally important they understand the consequences if they breach the policy.

Mark Moralez, owner, MP Printing Palace Inc.
